I travel frequently, for both work and pleasure, but desperately miss my dog Izzy when I can't bring her, which is far too often.
I work in the wine industry which allows me to visit the best cities in world selling wine and eating great food, so I count myself as pretty lucky.
As a balance to my travels I love to hang out at home in Portland, shop the farmer's market and cook for my family and friends. Life in Portland abounds with great outdoor fun, and we love to kayak on the cost, ski on Mt Hood,and bike around the city.
Although I love meeting new people, I also treasure my privacy and I need space and quiet to meditate, read, and create.
